Some were wondering how Stan Schluter, from
Texas, could build his Big Sky house on the Forest Service 166B
road, cutting off access without the Forest Service knowing. The
house was built in 2001, 4761 sq. ft. Source
"Schlueter explains that
she and her husband had spent years talking about building such
a home, so when it came time to do the actual work the couple had
an architect translate their ideas onto paper and turn it over to
' They take the plans and actually build the log portions in Canada,
then take the whole thing apart and bring it down on 18-wheelers,'
she explains. 'They had a crew of five or six guys there for a couple
weeks that put it together and put in the windows. They come back
later with the logs for the roofline.' "
about the contention and the GVLT
I went to the Gallatin Valley
Courthouse to secure copies of the Corcoran Pulpwood Company granting
a perpetual easement to the Forest Service of West Fork Loop Road
No. 166B and Basin Road No. 166D.
